Middle Georgia Restaurants Featured In 100 Plates Locals Love

Several Middle Georgia eateries were recently featured in an article entitled 100 Plates Locals Love, published online by the website. The 100 Plates selected were from a wide ranging group of restaurants that represent a rather eclectic culinary selection. You also have to keep in mind the article was written by the state of Georgia’s Official Tourism and Travel agency, so a lot of emphasis was placed on selecting dishes from around the state in order to shine the tourism light evenly.

Here are the selections from our neck of the woods as decided by the Explore Georgia writers. For the most part our Food Editor agrees with the selections made, but would have made a few minor changes.
